California Fire  Prevention Organization

CFPO is focused on education and awareness, both for specific segments of the public and the fire service. By demonstrating a commitment to community risk reduction (CRR), not just as a phrase for PR, but as a functional process, a new series of fire education initiatives will be shared across the state.

Combined, our team has collectively presented to more than 670,000 students during the past 33 years, primarly in southern California. Presentations and programs have been delivered to more than 250,000 students in the 4th and 5th grades by our experts in just the past four years.

It’s our mission to reduce the threat to life from fire utilizing technology, education, and localized awareness for the fire service and the general public.
